Katy Farber is the author of Eat Non-Toxic: a manual for busy parents and blogs at Non-Toxic Kids, which she started in 2007 after the birth of her second daughter.

Katy and the site have been featured in The Washington Post, the Richmond Times Dispatch, the Toronto Star, Enviroblog, Terrain Magazine, the Huffington. She has a growing following on both Twitter and Facebook and regularly interacts with readers online.
In addition, Katy writes for Moms Clean Air Force, MomsRising, Safer Chemicals, and has published articles on CNN’s School of Thought blog, Fox News Opinion, Problogger, Educational Leadership, and many others. She is also the author of two books about education, Why Great Teachers Quit and How We Might Stop the Exodus (2010), Change the World with Service Learning: How to Organize, Lead and Assess Service Learning Projects, (2011).
